Well, i dont smoke, so really dont have a dog in this fight. But from a political standpoint, it would save bookoos of taxpayer dollars on the "war on drugs", incarserations, and such. It would also add increased revenue from taxing it. So why not, i say go for it.

marijuana isn't even a drug really....the only reason its illegal is because hemp was ruining the paper business and some President had a stock in it or something....i watched a documentary about it and it was pretty cool

Seriously, taxing it is one thing but getting rid of all the money, time and effort spent to criminalize marijuana would be a massive savings.

agree with many of you that have made this point, taxes and savings.

I feel the penalties for driving under the influence need to be majorly severe. I think DUI penalties are too light as well, not to deviate to much but just to state the punishment needs to be significant.

It'll become legal soon. It's everywhere. I'm gonna get my card soon. I used to think bad of it but once I tried it I realized how much worse alcohol is...

From a political standpoint to be fair, treat weed like alcohol. Make it illegal to drive while high (even though most can still operate a vehicle high), obviously set an age limit, and then do it like Amsterdam not trying to sound so cliche. Allow it in shops, and your own home not in public places.
Done deal.

You definitely have to set rules. There is a limit where driving is not great when high, but man, you are REALLY fucking high. The biggest danger is when you mix it with alcohol. Then you really have a problem with people behind the wheel. Age limits make perfect sense.

As far as legalizing it goes. The last time around in California the polls showed the measure winning by a good margin. It was going to pass, except for the stoners were too busy being stoned to get off of the couch and freakin' vote. Pretty bad when stoners can't get off their ass and vote for something they want. You going to pay attention this time stoner?
